Ever Forget What You Put in a Jar? There’s a Ridiculously Technological Solution to That.



This is what we’ve come to – programmable jars that remember expiration dates and know how much of whatever is inside (assuming you get that correct the first time). It might be quite useful for dementia patients who forget things – presuming they still remember how to configure an iPad, which strikes me as a touch more complex than remembering what an ingredient you can see in a glass jar actually is.

On the other hand, if this jar really is smart, and it really does “think like me,” I can think of some situations it could quite crucially help to avoid.
